    The Best Texas Music Venues for Road Trippin'

    As you might have noticed, we're a bit obsessed with traveling here at the Observer. We've given you weekend getaways, food centered trips, and hidden road trips. So it was only a matter of time before we got in on the fun here at DC9. Being that we live and breathe Texas music, here are the 12 musi ... More >>

    Entourage: Fitting Finale or Farewell Flop?

    ​I dunno, last Sunday night's finale to HBO's Entourage was a little too tidy for me. Vince finally got the girl. Eric was back with Sloan. Ari was reconciling with Mrs. Ari. Drama's show was a go and even Turtle was a trim, fit millionaire. What the what?!  I guess I prefer my bre ... More >>

    Why We Love Sports in America

    Corporal Punishment at Dallas Lickin' High School

    I'm 44. But I'm about to sound 84. It was a better world when paddling was a part of school. A safer world when "licks" between a teacher and student were punishment rather than perverted pleasure. Hear me out: I'm not condoning the 21 "licks" allegedly applied to the backside of a Lincoln High Scho ... More >>

    If so, you'll be delighted to know something called the Intense Football League is coming to Dallas. Well, actually, like everything else, it's coming to Frisco.
